Repurposed Screen Door Project for the Porch

$0
2 Hours
Easy

I used another of my screen doors as a divider on the porch. After washing and scrubbing, I ripped off the old screen and wire, then painted with exterior satin paint in black. I cut the screen off an existing door I was not using, then stapled to the back of this one and finished by attaching wood strips with screws. Hinges are screwed right to the side of the house with an L-bracket attached to the floor so it won't swing.
